  • Clever ways to socialise whilst keeping off the pounds
  • Health features and advice on mind and body
  • Brain-training puzzles
  • Expert fashion and beauty tips to help inspire confidence

Commenting on the launch, Liz Watkinson, Managing Director of Bauer Media’s TV Listings & Real Life portfolio said: “The idea of a magazine using real-life stories to help, support, encourage women to fulfil their goals was seen as differentiating, relevant and appealing to the readers we spoke to. Executed with the inclusiveness, empathy and realism that our titles are well known for, this magazine delivers a both informative and entertaining package which will guide our readers towards being the best version of themselves.”

Priced at £1.90, the 76-page magazine will target a mass market audience of 40+ women and will be displayed in newsagents and supermarkets, alongside other titles in the Real Life and Classic market.

The launch will be supported with an in-house advertising campaign across the Bauer Media portfolio alongside targeted radio advertising on Bauer Media’s Bauer City Network (BCN) stations.
